The Altar Lyrics
By Ray Boltz


Artist: Ray Boltz
Album: The Concert Of A Lifetime
Date: 1995
Song: The Altar

_______________________________________________

The service is nearing an end
The choir is singing "Just As I Am"
And now as that old song is played
People at the altar are kneeling down to pray
Some are finding mercy
Forgiveness for their sin
Some are fighting battles
Theyíve been struggling to win
The time has come to give them to the Lord
Thatís what this altar is for

Thatís what this altar is for
You donít have to carry those burdens anymore
Thereís a light in the darkness
And thereís a love thatís true
And Jesus is waiting
Waiting here for you
Go quickly now before they close the door
Thatís what this altar is for
I see a father is praying with his son

Momma kneels beside them
Thanking God theyíve come
Thereís an old man standing there in tears
Giving up a part of him
Heís held back for years
Hearts are being broken
Lives are being changed
And those who call upon Him
They will never be the same
The time has come to give in to the Lord
Thatís what this altar is for

Thatís what this altar is for
You donít have to carry those burdens anymore
Thereís a light in the darkness
And thereís a love thatís true
And Jesus is waiting
He is waiting here for you
Go quickly now before they close the door

You can give your burdens to the Lord
Thatís what this altar is for
